Evaluation of a leukocyte esterase and nitrite test strip for detection of bacteriuria

, : Evaluation of a leukocyte esterase and nitrite test strip for detection of bacteriuria. Current Microbiology 11(2): 119-122

The LN Chemstrip leukocyte esterase (LE) spot and the nitrite (N) spot were compared separately and in combination with colony-forming units (CFU/ml) in 628 urines. Using a positive LE or a positive N as an indicator of significant bacteriuria (105/ml), the sensitivity, specificity and the negative predictive values were high, but the positive predictive value was low. When LE and N were both negative, there was a close correlation with CFU/ml of < 20,000. For reactions other than LE-N-, a bimodal response was observed with most bacterial counts split between 20,000 and 105 CFU/ml.

We adapted a highly sensitive and reproducible ELISA technique for the determination of anti-elastin peptide antibodies of IgG type AEAb-IgG) and IgM type AEAb-IgM) in human sera. The determination was performed in the sera of 265 normal and disea...

Despite the use of statin therapy, a significant proportion of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) still develop cardiovascular events. We hypothesized that development of mitochondrial dysfunction (MD) after statin therapy might be linked...
